Trial by Combat

An Easternite tradition. Despite the reduced connection to religion compared to the old world, some practices survived the transition. Of the varied Trials by Ordeal, Combat was the more resilient. It is a way to settle baseless accusations or respond to insults via the use of a sanctionned battle or duel.


Trials by Combat are, in general, far more bloody than the Grudge Dueling observed in the Keratos Empire. The official arbiter's priorities aren't to prevent the death or maiming of any of the participants for one, and weapons are allowed for two.


Such a practice is observed in appropriate buildings or fields within Human cities or noble properties. They occur during the day on any day that fits both parties.
